As the UK accelerates its transition to a net zero economy opportunities are emerging. In recent years, decarbonisation has moved from a threat, to a risk, to an imperative, and now to a genuine source of business value. Businesses that act early and decisively can access fast-growing markets at home and abroad, attract the best talent and a lower cost of capital.
Join us to influence the CBI’s actions to business and government over the coming year, as we take a deep dive into business’ role in supporting net zero through the reduction of carbon footprints, as well as how the policy environment can evolve to encourage higher levels of business investment in the critical years ahead.
In this session, you will hear from the CBI and fellow business leaders about the environment and opportunities for decarbonisation in the UK, and feed in your view on the key challenges and blockers to progress. You will also have the opportunity to shape success criteria, share ideas for what government and business could do differently, and highlight your own good practice as we look to profile where business is already leading the way.
Sessions are open to all CBI members. We encourage businesses to attend as many sessions as are relevant and welcome multiple delegates from the same firm as the input shapes the CBI’s workplan for 2022.
